Scope and content

On the August Bank Holiday in 1970 the SPAJERS organised a chariot race. The races ran for about 5 years but sadly, while being much enjoyed by the spectators, not enough teams could be persuaded to enter so after around 5 years, the event was dropped.
Those who did take part went to great lengths to dress the part and make fun chariots. Some of the men who took part were:-
Colin Woodward
Richard Dunston
Frank Hudson
Brian Radband
Robert Radbad
Maurice Walsh
Ken Mullis
Tony Sweetenham (may be Sweetingham)
